Two women were stabbed in Ocean Beach early today while attempting to stop an attack on a male companion, police said.
Two suspects attacked the companion in the 2100 block of Bacon Street near Brighton Avenue around 12:30 a.m., prompting the two women to intervene, San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros said.
A fight ensued in which both the two women and the two suspects suffered non-life-threatening stab wounds, according to the officer.
Delimitros said all five people involved in the altercation were subsequently interviewed by police and the incident was under investigation. The male companion was unhurt, but the four others are hospitalized with non-
life-threatening wounds, police said.
